The Rogue One advertising blitz is taking off


Lucasfilm released a new tv spot – our first for the movie itself – for Rogue One today. The pieces are (mostly) familiar, but assembly may raise some questions on what we know so far. (Though recall the TFA trailers also had bits of dialogue that didn’t make the final cut.)

Mon Mothma still trying to unite the Rebellion in Rogue One

Their Rogue One issue should be on sale (and in mailboxes) today, but Entertainment Weekly still has more to reveal. This morning, it’s all about Rebel leader Mon Mothma, whose role here will be bigger than her first appearance in Return of the Jedi.

“We actually see quite a bit of her,” Kathleen Kennedy says. “The Rebel alliance is in disarray. Pretty panicked. Up against it. And she is trying the best she can to provide the leadership, in amongst a wide variety of Rebel soldiers that have very differing opinions as to what to do.”

As we learned back after the first trailer, Mothma is played by Genevieve O’Reilly, who was cast back for Revenge of the Sith.
